Data Driven Equity Standards Workshop

28 Apr 2023 - 28 Apr 2023

Mobilizing Justice invites you to a workshop on developing Data Driven Equity Standards. The goals of this workshop are twofold:

  • to identify which outcomes (in employment, health, etc.) should be tested against transportation metrics to identify equitable thresholds for transportation supply
  • to identify researchers interested in contributing to an open source effort to conduct these tests.

The workshop will take place on zoom on Friday, April 28th, from noon-2pm EST.  Participation in this workshop will require some pre-reading, and two weeks prior we will send a summary of the following:

  • A systematic review of over 500 studies using or evaluating standards in transportation research.
  • A review of surveys in the Statistics Canada Research Data Centres (RDCs) for data on individual outcomes that can assist in setting equity standards in transportation planning.

If you would like to participate, please register HERE.  We will use the registered emails to send out the pre-workshop materials, so please register if you are interested but unsure if you want to attend.
